CAN I PAY MY TICKET FOR DUBLIN FAMILY REUNIFICATION ON MY OWN TO FLY SOONER?

No, this is not possible. Zorpidis, the responsible travel agency, confirmed to the Mobile Info Team that they are not allowed to receive any money from family reunification applicants. The tickets are paid for by funds from the European Union. Also tickets can only be issued, if you were told by the Dublin Unit of the Greek Asylum Service via phone that your ticket is now ready. You can also check online, if your case number is ready to be processed on this link

If you are in Athens, you will receive after your ticket is ready another call from the Zorpidis office there. They will make an appointment with you to pick up your ticket in the Asylum Service in Katechaki. If you are in Thessaloniki and you were notified that your ticket is ready, you can either pass by the office of Zorpidis and ask for your ticket or you can write an email to Zorpidis and they can send you an electronic ticket. This email needs to be in English or Greek. If you need help with writing this email, please get in contact with your lawyer or social worker. If you live far away from Athens or Thessaloniki the ticket can also be issued via email.

If you didn't get the call from the Dublin Unit you will unfortunately not be able to receive your ticket and you will have to wait a little longer until it is your turn.
